Karen Tsujimoto and Jennifer Gross - The art of David Ireland - University of California Press 2003
This book accompanied the first full-scale retrospective of Ireland's work.
Curator and author Karen Tsujimoto provided an insightful overview of more than thirty years of the artist's accomplishments, from his drawings, sculptures, and site-specific installations to his remarkable series of architectural transformations, including his well-known house at 500 Capp Street in San Francisco. Tsujimoto explores how key life experiences have influenced his artistic perspective - from his early art-student days, through his years as an African importer and safari guide, to his long-standing interest in Eastern, and particularly Zen, philosophy and his deep connections with the San Francisco Bay Area conceptual art community. An illuminating essay by art historian and curator Jennifer R. Gross also considers Ireland's art in terms of historical materialism - assessing his use of neglected materials and artefacts as a process of cultural preservation.
